to buy more tools!

Actually I joined a makerspace - it's awesome to have access to tools that I don't necessarily want to own. I'd strongly recommend it.

Regarding the vertical metal bandsaw - You can do everything you need to with a hacksaw, it just takes longer. The first round of scrapers I made I cut and ground by hand. Heated them with two cans of MAP gas.

But your point is correct. If you personally own the tools, you can probably afford to buy turning tools and not make your own.

If you don't own the tools, there is a good chance that someone in your turning club would be happy to help you out.
